Organizing your work

Workspaces

In Nuclino, all your work is organized around workspaces. You can create a workspace for any team, topic, or workflow you want, for example, "Employee Handbook" or "Issue Tracker". Every workspace comes with its own default view, privacy, and access settings.

Collections and items

Workspaces contain items (think of them as pages) that are grouped in collections (which work like categories or folders).

In the list view, add items and collections using the + in the sidebar and arrange them using drag-and-drop. Collections can be nested infinitely, meaning that you can create sub-collections inside of collections.

In the board view, collections visualize the stages of your workflow, while items act as cards or tasks. They can be dragged and dropped from collection to collection, allowing you to easily track your progress.

In the table view, items are the rows of your table, and collections and fields are the columns which allow you to label and contextualize your docs and tasks.

Internal links

Another great way to organize your work is using internal links. Simply type @ and the item title to link to it. Internal links make it easy to explore your content like a website and seamlessly navigate between different related docs.

Fields

Fields allow you to track additional information about items. You can create a field for anything that’s important to your workflow – for example, priority, due date, status, ownership, and much more. It's a great way to segment and categorize items in a workspace.

Creating and editing

Every item can contain rich content, such as tasks, tables, code blocks, equations, and more. You can also easily embed media from other apps.

Use the + button or type / to see the types of content you can add. If you are looking for something specific, type it out to filter the options, for example, /table or /task.

To format your text, simply select a section of text and pick the styling you need.

Nuclino also supports a set of Markdown commands, providing a quick and simple way to format content without taking your hands off the keyboard.

Collaborating

Every Nuclino item can be collaboratively edited in real time. No edit mode, no save button, no version conflicts – simply start typing and every change will be saved automatically and tracked in the version history.

You can also communicate with your team asynchronously using comments and mentions, so you can preserve the context of every decision.

Groups

Create groups for team members who may need access to the same content and often need to be notified at once. For example, you can send notifications to all @Engineers and automatically add them to your Engineering workspace, without having to mention or add them one by one. Simply go to your team settings and create a group for them.

Access

You can easily manage the access level of each team member by assigning appropriate roles and permissions.

  • On the team level, you can define how much control they would have over basic team settings, billing, and so on.

  • On the workspace level, you can decide which members are allowed to add or edit content and who will only be able to view or comment on it.
